My Husband is a Star..and I Won a Giveaway!

My Husband is a STAR!

We went to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN for Spring Break last week and had a blast! We planned out the whole week and ran hard, but we did everything we wanted to do!

We went to the Dixie Stampede, which is dinner and a show. We have been there several times and never tire of going there. The kids love it. While we were sitting among a thousand people, someone came by and asked if we wanted to be in the show. I immediately said "no" because we had the kids and I had flip flops on and to be honest, it made me really nervous. I do not like being the center of attention. Autumn was upset at me for not doing it and I started to regret. I was wondering if I would ever be asked again. Guess what? They came back! A different person came and asked. We decided that it was meant to be, so off we went. I had to wear Austin's tennis shoes and Autumn and Austin sat with the girls. We were one of only four couples racing stick horses and we WON! Too much fun!

On to my Husband. The next night, we went to the Comedy Barn. Guess who was called up on the stage? Just watch and see. He is Julio! ...and a really good one! He is going to kill me!

Funny?...and it wasn't a sweater vest! :)

He was a really good sport! I have shown everyone!


I won a giveaway! Have you heard of Scentsy?

It is wickless warmers that you plug in. They melt scented blocks and are much safer than candles. Go check them out HERE. Thanks, Amber! I can not wait to get my prize!


My Step-Dad is getting better every day. He retires from AT&T this Friday, so we are really looking forward to having him around this summer! Please continue to remember the family of the lost children in your prayers.

Until next time...............

Oh that Julio is so funny! I laughed so hard:) I am happy you all had a great time! I wish I could have seen the horse race! We all missed you around here. I will go look at the Scentsy, great win! Pa is really enjoying NOT working. I am surprised at how well he is "Acting" retired:) He is healing inside and out. I will always pray for those sweet parents. They have a special place in my heart.

Love you, MOM!

Hey Suz! We stayed at Riverstone Resort and Spa! It was a great place to stay. It was very affordable and right next to Dollywood. We got a three bedroom on the golf course and there was a great big indoor pool that the kids loved. Hope you come back and see my answer! I definitely recommend the Riverstone and will stay there again!

lol Your husband was a good sport. It's funny to see our husbands called on stage. They usually look unsure of what will happen which makes it better for our entertainment. ;)

Congrats on winning a giveaway! :) Always fun!
